3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruby/copper colour with a large foamy natural white head. Aromas of plum, fig, Belgian yeast, and some light cherry are present. It's medium body and fizzy carbonation do give it somewhat of a soda feel, but not in a bad way. Fairly dry in the tongue, some warming alcohol, notes of fruit, bitter cherry. This is a very modest beer, no intense flavours jumping out, everything is very subdued.

good, but this is a big dropoff from the Rochefort 10. aroma had something a bit different, sort of a cola feel to it. raisins, figs and such are touted in the description. i can see that. it’s a good beer, but considering it was the same price as a Rochefort 10, I’ll just go for the 10 next time.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour. Pours a dark, muddy color with a head that lasts forever. Semi sweet , but overall mild aroma with light fruit. Dusty flavor up front, very light fruit notes hidden in there. Minimum sweetness. Some light fruit, but overall there isn’t much going on here. Nothing offensive about it, but it wasn’t anything spectacular. Definitely liked it though. Good.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tulip. Very dark hazy brown with orange around the edge of the glass. Thick marshmallow head that dissipates reasonably quickly. Smell is fresh hops, yeast, dried spice. Rich fruit, raisin, plums, figs, caramel, cracker/bread, honey, berry, hops. Crisp flavour that keeps developing in your mouth. Good body but overwhelmingly fizzy.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cloudy brown pour, creamy off white head. Nose is leather and cherries. Bittersweet. Middle wraps your tongue in soft dark fruit, coco nibs and metal. Finish returns to the soft leather and drying yeasts. Wow!

Color is a hazy brown with high carbonation apparent. Smell is malty. Taste is like a christmas cake with a part containing purely sweet icing as well as dried fruits. Quite a bit of different burnt sugars Feel is gentle, old. Yeasty phenolics are pleasant and mild. Aroma is boring but a good beer.
